  Happy Father's Day!
 
Flag Day - June 14th is Flag Day - Honor and remember all the men and women that gave of themselves and those that are currently serving our country so that we are able to display our flag with pride in a free country.
 
Summer Volunteers - School will be out soon. If you are a parent looking for a purposeful activity for your child this summer, how about allowing them to volunteer at the pantry? Some lifting might be required. Our young volunteers are able to see first hand and learn what hunger is all about. They not only helped us but they also served the community. Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older. A parental consent form is necessary if under 18. Please contact us during our hours of operation. 
 
USPS Food Drive - KMFP benefitted from the National Association of Letter Carrier's Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive held on May 14th. A special Thank You to all the postal employees and to all the residents that contributed goods.
Food Donations – continue to come in everyday and we are truly grateful for everything we receive. We are so lucky to have people that know us and know that we do all that we can to make sure no man, woman or child goes hungry.

If you have specific questions about food donations please contact Associate Director Sherry Hill during our hours of operation.
